Dhaka, Feb 15: Misbah-ul-Haq and teenager Ahmed Shehzad both hit centuries to ease Pakistan to an 89-run victory over Bangladesh in a World Cup warmup match on Tuesday.

Misbah (100) took just 99 balls to reach the landmark, blasting eight boundaries and four sixes in Dhaka.

Bangladesh lost top batsman Tamim Iqbal on the first ball to a swerving delivery by Abdul Razzaq.

After a 71-run second-wicket partnership between Imrul Kayes (39) and Junaid Siddique (38) came to end in the 10th over, the World Cup co-hosts never looked liked reaching the target.

Razzaq was Pakistan's best bowler, returning figures of 3-31. AP
